Ukraine: 'Many' insurgents killed in Slovyansk

Updated: Monday, June 23 2014, 10:55 AM CDT

Ukraine's acting president says pro-Russia insurgents have suffered significant losses, including many killed and injured, after his government launched an offensive on the eastern city of Slovyansk.

Oleksandr Turchynov says in a statement that two Ukrainian soldiers were killed and seven wounded in Friday's clashes.

Earlier in the day, pro-Russia forces shot down two Ukrainian helicopters as the government began its offensive against an insurgency that has seized government buildings in the east.

The Kremlin said Kiev's offensive "destroyed" the two-week-old agreement on cooling Ukraine's crisis.
